I did it! That is, indeed, a smug look on my face in the above pic. For the first time in a couple of years I managed to see in the New Year. The last time I heard the bells chime at midnight was in 2014 – I am SO rock ‘n’ roll! And believe me I’ve tried, but I always end up falling asleep, glass of fizz clutched optimistically in my hand.
Celebrating The New Year
But this year was different, this year saw Andrew (AKA Mr Chic) and I booking a meal at our favourite Italian restaurant in Ramsgate and being bloody determined to watch the fireworks from the bough of our boat. Being surrounded by boats decked in their holiday finery certainly helped keep our spirits high – as of course did the fizz, hic!
The food at La Magnolia was, as always, superb. We spent a couple of hours chomping our way through the evening and toasting the New Year with a glass or two. Though, in all fairness, some of the glasses were filled with limoncello sorbet!
However you celebrated New Year’s Eve and whatever your plans for 2017, may I raise a glass to a brilliant year to come. Cheers to you all!
